Summary:This film describes the military build-up of American defense forces during the Kennedy administration. It emphasizes the need for the U.S. to be ready for any military threat and describes weapons developed for this purpose. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
